Wow

Notice that I added a "w" to the title of this entry; an hour ago it would've just been "ow", as that's all I've been saying today.
One reason I keep a journal is so I can learn from my mistakes. Here's the latest lesson I have learned: DO NOT attempt the 75-minute workout DVD until you can handle the 30-minute one without consequence! It hurt to turn over in bed last night, and every step I took today hurt. Advil didn't help, and I didn't have anything stronger.
...Or did I? As I have mentioned, I don't get my best painkiller from a drugstore; I get it from Bruiser (my iPod, not my dealer). I just played one song ("You Are Loved"), but I feel so much better. I took a walk around the office to make sure it worked, and sure enough, I'm not saying "ow" with every step I take.
And according to this month's issue of Allure, science will back me up on this one. An article on happiness says that music triggers the pleasure center of the brain and creates...wonderful sensations, let's just put it that way.
